I thought it was a great moment after Raw this week for those who saw the link posted, where Undertaker came down to the Shawn Michael's appreciation segment and said that if there was a Mt. Rushmore of wrestling, Shawn would be a part of it (and the biggest head I believe is how he put it). So that made me curious as to who you would include in such a thing if it existed. Who are the 4 biggest wrestlers/superstars/faces/heads in the history of WWE? And if you have photoshop skills show us the real thing!
As for my opinion, I think my WWE Mt Rushmore would be Flair, Hogan, HBK and Taker...

If they were to do it, John Cena, HHH, HBK, Taker. Why the hell wouldn't they use Cena? He is their biggest draw of all time.

Vince McMahon (biggest head), Hulk Hogan (biggest known name in wrestling), The Rock (I'm not a fan of his, but he is a big name that brought in alot of new fans) and John Cena (same as the Rock)

I may be a bit old school but my Mount Rushmore would be Gorgeous George, Antonino Rocca, Maurice Tillet, and Lou Thesz

because only kids 14 and under or virgins know who the hell he is. I asked all my friends who john cena is and they said who lol. there is much more deserving guys to have their head up there that made much more of an impact.

No Stone Cold?!?

He's brought in more fans than Rock and Cena combined.

I like Stone Cold more than Rock but you are crazy if you think he brought in more fans than the Rock. Rock is a big time movie actor there are people out there that know him first from movies and don't even know he was a wrestler. Stone Cold, only wrestling fans know who he is when they see him in a movie. My homeboy proved that to me when I watched the longest yard with him.

Cena I put there because he is the biggest name in wrestling at this time. (All my selections were from the different eras that I have watched wrestling)

I could definitely agree with Stone Cold bringing in more than Rock, but not twice as many as Rock, let alone Rock and Cena combined.

I'm sorry but you can't really put a head on the WWE Mt. Rushmore of a wrestler that's still active, no matter how much they've done for the company. Because of this, Cena is out. Vince, while the main man, isn't a wrestler either so he's out. It should be Hogan, SCSA, The Rock, and either HHH, Bret Hart, Taker, or HBK.

both of the highlighted guys have matches scheduled on major ppv's also the rock is likely going to be a wwe champion again. I'm not saying they are super active but they're not done with their wrestling careers either.. I could make similar cases for hogan and taker

I think it's due to the fact that he was the biggest draw back in the old WWWF days before Vince Mcmahon Jr. took over his dad's company and made it mainstream. He drew out MSG countless times and became the first man to hold the NWA World title along with the WWWF World title. Hes one of, if not, the biggest draws in WWE history.

Very true, but do we honestly consider then to still be active? They are basically like the old guys that still want to have a match or two. Hell Terry Funk is still out there wrestling somewhere but I don't really consider him "active." lol

well as long as they are still in main events of major promotions main ppv's I consider them active. summerslam has HHH in it's main event and its one of the wwe's main four ppvs.. and the rock is in the rumbles wwe title match what is another of wwe's major four ppv's. IMO as long as you are competing in major wrestling ppv's you are at least some what active.(repeated twice for extra emphasis :))

Yes because this not real thing has rules, so Vince can't be included. :rolleyes:

Not really being a watcher of PPVs I have no clue what their main ones are. I know Wrestlemania and that's about it for main ones. Still, even with them wrestling in those PPVs I don't see them in their gear in the ring week in and week out so to me that's not active, maybe I'd call it "just barely" active. Anyways, I'd gladly leave The Rock off and there are still others that I listed that you could have in his and HHH's place. So problem solved.

Come now. You ask a question then we must have parameters for said question.

Two points: 1: If this were to become a real thing and be commissioned, do you think Vince would leave himself off? 2: Just because he didn't wrestle, doesn't mean you can take away what he's done for the business. Whether you detest Vince or not.

Also not all questions need parameters.

Vince McMahon - Of Course
Hulk Hogan - Made wrestling main stream
Stone Cold Steve Austin - The main reason why there was likely 1000+ RAWs in the first place
HHH - The next Vince McMahon

Honorable mention:
Fritz Von Erich - Essentially laid out the blue print for modern day wrestling. At one point, WCCW was right there with biggest promotion in the country
Ric Flair - the 2nd biggest name of the 1980s
HBK - The best in ring performer of all time
Bret Hart - Perhaps the best "wrestler" of the 1990s

Well, if you're going to include the promotion when it was still known as the WWF, before the lawsuit, it would be imperative to include Bruno Sammartino, the man the company was built upon--Hall Of Fame or not.

Barrett, let's be honest. We couldn't really make a 4 head Mount Rushmore of the WWE. It would need to be more like a dozen heads. Too many people have meant too much to this business.

On a different note, CM Rock-Austin, who is that chick on your sig? I like the TNA I see (hehehe you see what I did there?).

It just can't be done, you'd have like 7 heads if you wanted it to be really relevant. It would consist of Rock, Stone Cold, Hogan, Taker, HBK, Cena and of course Vince. I guess Cena can be dropped because the full impact of his time in the WWE won't be seen until he has retired. But of the other six who do you leave out? Also I forgot Flair, lol. And cases can be made for other guys like BretHart as well. I just don't think it's possible to come up with only 4.
